this for a bill that can't and shouldn't become law. joining us now is ron meier, spokesperson for american majority action and jared bernstein a senior fellow and an msnbc contributor. welcome to you both. jared, this plan b, it's not only an affront to what the president has been trying to do in terms of a balanced approach. it's also a colossal waste of time, isn't it? >> absolutely. i mean, i have been writing about this in terms of theatrics at a time when really nobody ought to be going to the theater. the fiscal cliff is way too close for this type of game playing and i just noted today that the gdp report for the third quarter got a little bit of a bump. it was marked up to 3.1%. we're actually making some progress on this economic recovery, but if we go over and stay over the cliff because of all this screwing around, forget about it. you're going to have that recovery go south very quickly. john boehner on monday looked like a guy who is willing to make a balanced compromise or at least consider one in the interest of the country. john boehner on wednesday looks like a guy who is
, and with me tonight are msnbc political analyst ron reagan and real clear politics reporter erin mcpike. i was stunned to see bobby casey, the senator from pennsylvania, who is a classic pennsylvanian, in the past he's received a b plus or an a rating from the nra. he tolded philadelphia enquirer he will come back for -- coming out for a new assault weapons ban and legislation banning high round magazines. he said his decision amounted to being summoned by your conscience. he said his wife had pressed him to rethink his position on gun safety in the wake of newtown. he said the power of the weapon, the number of bullets that hit each child, that was so, to me, just so chilling, it haunts me. it should haunt every public official. if those two bills come before the senate i will vote for both. these a risky strong position by bob casey. >> he's not the only one. joe manchin, the senator from west virginia on monday was saying this has changed his thinking. of course, these are two democrats -- >> but manchin hasn't said he will vote for these two bills. bobby casey said he will. it's differ
observed and what i heard from ron case. i found by checking with justin gen and abc that there is a place for retail wine shop and it didn't say they wanted to be retail wine shop. they said we want to be a wine-tasting bar, either written in by them or abc, because that was the intent. here they were given a clear conditional use that said repeatedly in order to avoid confusion, it will not be a bar. the noise problem was brought to my attention, apart from the fact that i hear it when i go by there with the windows and doors open by many people and certainly by the managers in the building; when i went there on a different purpose that the elders there really suffer. i brought you some of the statements of support, okay? there is a petition, signed by people all over the city, and? in the greater nob hill area and nobody nearby within a block or two blocks except one i see on the page. statements on the black, i want to change the verbiage from wine-tasting to wine bar. now you can say it doesn't add a bar, but it does really. he added a bar that wasn't supposed to be there. the police
, if he gets it through congress, he gains a little bit more leverage to have a bigger discussion. >> ron insana, isn't it interesting that this market is expecting a deal so much? >> yeah. >> even when we had both sides digging in. at the end of the day, money moves into equities as if investors are saying there's no way these guys won't do a deal by december 31? >> maria, so much different than what we saw last year in 2011 when the debt ceiling debacle took place. the market appears to be looking through this and seeing through all the posturing and making the bet that the deal, as you say, will get done. i like to go with the cumulative which is do. markets, the message of the markets, however you want to characterize it and think that somebody knows something a little bit better than i do on this one and, hence, they are discounting a positive rather than a negative outcome. >> yeah, for sure. bill stone, how are you allocating money in the face of all of this? >> i think you have to think about how it plays out in the end which we believe you get a deal. don't run away from in terms

, like, it's not like she's done this like insanely awful thing. she just got it ron and rushed to judge and said shake hands and everything will be okay and didn't take into account the history of those two students and didn't put the pieces together that the boy that didn't want to shake hands was someone that had been victimized and bullied over and over and over again. and then you see that happen. so i would say that in our film these little moments, like what ros said about things that come out of your mouth with your kids, you are, like, oh, no. these are the things, this is actually where the rubber meeting the road a little bit and it's the hardest stuff. we screened in sioux city before anyone had seen the movie for all the administrators in the movie. obviously we've been down a long road with this community and i will make a point thanking them for their courage in making this film, which is what you thought nobody would ever do, which is allow a camera to film for a year inside a building and film those interactions and those conversations. but they did it because they wa

reserve. >> if a government destroys the value of currency, it will destroy the middle class. >> ron paul railed against the federal reserve and got applaud from growing clouds. >> we don't have the money, run out of borrowing power and guess what they do? they start printing money. >> despite paul and others' criticism the fed acted more aggressively. doubling down on printing more money each month to keep interest rates low for the future. >> it's likely warranted through 2015. >> why are they doing it? go back to the national debt clock. remember, we were staring at it it early in series. the debt to gdp or gross domestic product ratio is at 102%. the highest since just after world war ii. that is with extremely and historically low interest rates. even at these rates, that interest will cost the u.s. more and more every year. $222 billion in interest payments on the debt this year. $570 billion by 2022. at current rates. >> this stuff is no joke. we have a big interest to keep the interest payments low. also, incidentally keeping interest payments low so we can, so that other parts of
say it, ron, housing has finally turned the corner. that is it. it is off to the races. >> connell, i could not agree more. i would say that housing is back. it has been in the penalty box as it relates to the economy. i think that this past year, we have moved from a drag to being a very small contributor. i think next year, it will start to assume the role that it has played four years. that is as a country emerges out of a slowdown, housing is a major contributor in bringing it back and bringing growth into the economy. connell: if someone has been watching and waiting and they do not want to get out and buy a new house, they could have been thinking home prices will come down even more and, now, maybe not, by looking at these numbers. what would you say to someone who has been waiting and not willing to jump in yet? >> there have been plenty of people waiting. i think reality is, you can only wait so long. i think we have a number of the key metrics in place that would suggest now is the right time. we have inventory at a ten-year low. we are down to about 2 million existing home
and create a better life, then we must encourage young americans to embrace what ron has consistence and elizabeth sawhill have called the "success sequence." that is very simple: you complete high school, get a full-time job, get married before having kids. you follow that you are virtually guaranteed to avoid poverty. the marriage culture is fighting an uphill battle against forces threatening to overwhelm it. everyone who believes in limited government and economic freedom and the real self-worth and well-being of our children should do their part in rebuilding the institution of marriage. no other social cause or campaign is more vital to america's future. when it comes to shaping our culture, we must also improve the quality of our students' civic education. i fear that many american students are graduating from high school and college with only the vaguest knowledge of our founding and our constitution, what it means to be an american. it's hard to defend rights if you don't know what they are or where they came from. schools shape students' views about our priorities as a soci
. host: hi, ron. what do you think about the gun laws as a gun owner? caller: i have two weapons and i call them weapons because i served in our military. i have a critter gun to take care of small rodent. i would never consider an ar-15 for that purpose and an extended clip for something like rabbits or groundhogs is laughable. i also own a 12 gauge shotgun. as a person who handles an assault weapon, i can tell you they are designed to maximize killing of human beings. they are not sporting weapons of any kind, and allow people to have them with extended clips is laughable. i expect members of the nra are going to continue to expel this mischaracterization of what these weapons are for. host: frank is from oklahoma. we want to show the front page of "usa today" this morning. caller: i do not think the laws need to be changed. i have a 380 that i carry as a concealed weapon. it is about the same size as a 9 millimeter. host: so it is a handgun. caller: i carry it as a concealed weapon and i am licensed to do that. i have a home defense weapon that i use, a model 191145 caliber semi-aut
